Peugeot shows off roomy 308

2007-08-21 08:23
The term "Prologue" denotes its concept status, but strip away the motor show finery, and what you're left with is essentially Peugeot's new 308 SW.

The 308 SW Prologue is another in a list of 308 derivatives to be released ahead of the show.

The "concept" shows a roomy estate with a fairly high roofline promising loads of space.

Details are still being heavily guarded, but expect the engine range to track that offered in the hatchback range.

Including a range of both petrol and turbodiesel HDi powerplants, the SW could even be powered by the diesel hybrid unit set to debut in the all-new 308.

The French manufacturer is also set to unveil its all-new mid-sized 308 hatchback range in three- and five-door bodystyles at the show alongside the curvaceous 308 RC Z coupe concept.

Regarding the 308 SW in South Africa, Peugeot SA has said, "After we have introduced 308 we will extend our range to 308 SW and CC as we usually do, but it will depend on pricing."
